The Colorado Avalanche is set to appear in nine nationally televised games in the United States on NBC and NBCSN in 2019-20 after NBC Sports unveiled its full broadcast schedule on Wednesday.
Included in the telecast schedule is the season opener on Jan. 13 against the St. Louis Blues which is set for 8:30 p.m. MT at Ball Arena. The Avs will be featured solely on NBC network television on Feb. 20 against the Vegas Golden Knights and April 24 at St. Louis, both contests are scheduled for 1 p.m. MT.
Colorado is also set for three Sunday Night Hockey broadcasts on NBCSN, with the team playing at Vegas on Feb. 14 and hosting the Los Angeles Kings on both March 14 and April 18.
The Avalanche outings against the Minnesota Wild on Feb. 2, Blues on April 20 and Golden Knights on April 28 are all scheduled to be broadcast on NBCSN.
Colorado will face fellow West Division foes Anaheim, Arizona, Los Angeles, Minnesota, St. Louis, San Jose and Vegas eight times apiece (four home/away) during the 2020-21 season. Three of its matchups with the Blues and Golden Knights will air on the networks of NBC.
Though the Avs will have nine games nationally televised, the team will have not have more than seven exclusive appearances on NBC and NBCSN as those games will be blacked out in the local market.
All contests on NBC and NBC Sports can be streamed online at NBCSports.com and on the NBC Sports app (blackouts could apply).
The Avalanche's full regular-season broadcast schedule on Altitude TV will be announced in the coming days.
